Apple is recalling the iPod Nano (1st gen) due to a battery problem. Apparently the overheating "risk" happens later in its life as the battery is used and ages over time.

If you still own one click on the link below and follow the replacement process.

I thought that the die hard Apple users threw, I mean, recycled, their 1 generation old products for the newest one every year.

Just kidding...

Good to know. My kids both have iPods, although they are newer than 1st Gen.

Yup, they replaced mine w/ the latest gen. Not a bad return for my investment.

Yeah, I even looked on Craigslist and people had the same idea as I. (I already had an old one w/ pretty much a dead battery.) Buy a used 1st gen for $35 and return it for a new one. People on CL were asking for people to sell 'em.
